Jaipur: The city’s historical monuments that are famous world over are being digitally preserved. As part of this project, the department of information technology and communication has prepared a puzzle gaming app for children to learn more about Albert Hall Museum. This fun activity will make them more aware of their heritage and culture, officials said. The app will likely to be launched by June. The department has already introduced gaming apps for Hawa Mahal and Jantar Mantar. After Albert Hall, the gaming apps will also be prepared for Amber fort and Kumbhalgarh Fort. These games would be on the lines of popular gaming applications like Subway Surfer and Treasure Hunt. The gaming app for Albert Hall will be available for download on Android and iOS . The Albert Hall application will be a puzzle game with three levels. Players will have to find artifacts and objects hidden in different parts of the museum in each level. The game will get more complex as players get to the next level. Each level will have to be completed in a timeframe. The Hawa Mahal gaming application is a jigshaw puzzle. There are eight types of images of Hawa Mahal. Users have to connect these images to build a comprehensive picture of the monument. The Jantar Mantar application is a 3D game. A monk appears on the screen to give details of the observatory. Then users are required to answer questions in each level. Questions get complex as the user proceeds to the next level. “We believe that these games will familiarize this new generation with the city’s culture and heritage,” an official said.
